[key string]
no tacacs-server host hostname

Configures

The hostname of a TACACS server

Default

None

Description

This command allows you to list the TACACS servers you have available. If you list more than one hostname, the router attempts to contact them in the order they are listed.

hostname

The hostname of a TACACS, extended TACACS, or TACACS+ server.

single-connection

Optional. This keyword specifies that the router maintains a single connection to the TACACS server. In other words, after making a request, the router waits on the same connection for the server to respond. This feature works only with the TACACS+ protocol and CiscoSecure.

port number

Optional. Use this option to run your TACACS server on a different port than the default (port 49).

timeout seconds

Optional. This option allows you to specify a timeout value for this server in seconds. It overrides the default or the global setting configured by the tacacs-server timeout command.

key string

Optional. This option allows you to specify an encryption key for this server. It overrides the global setting configured by the tacacs-server key command.
